Just recently, a Singapore-based Pinay doctor was involved in a bitter war of words on Twitter with the Kapamilya actress Angel Locsin, apparently over the actress political beliefs.
The 34-year-old actress whose real name is Angelica Colmenares openly supported her cousin, Neri Colmenares in his second attempt in the Senate, and even appeared on his campaign posters.
Because of this, Angel receives bashing from many people as they believe that Colmenares as part of the communist group, the New People’s Army (NPA) in the Philippines.
While the actress protected her cousin from the issues and slammed supposedly ‘biased’ reports about his affiliation with the NPA, and his stand against the government in the recently held mid-term election. Angel got involved in heated arguments with some netizens regarding politics, that includes a Pinay doctor based in Singapore who goes by the handle (@donnz_MD).
Screenshots of their Twitter conversation was shared in a recent post by Fashion Pulis, where the Pinay doctor blasted the actress and underestimated her political beliefs.
“Dear Ms. Angel Locsin, Artista ka. Doctor ako. FYI lang. please take time to know your Philippine history very well. Your whining here on twitter is so embarrassing. Walang laman eh. NpA sprouted because of the liberal party whom you’re defending. Go to the mountain 4 u to know,” @donnz_MD wrote.
To which Angel fiercely fired back to the doctor’s negative comment.
“Bat hindi ho kayo ang mamundok ng makatulong pa ho kayo sa mga lugar na malayo ang ospital kesa ho gamitin nyo pa ho yung oras nyo sa pag tweet sa akin? Inaano ko po ba kayo, ma’am para magalit ka ng ganyan?” the actress replied.
The Pinay doctor rapidly fired back and told the actress that she comes from Eastern Samar where there are plenty of NPAs.
“Fyi, i am from eastern samar na madami ang NPA. Kaya hindi mo na kelangan sabihin sakin mamundok. Baka kaelangan mo yan for you to get in touch with reality. Not with written scripts,” @donnz_MD posted.
“Lagi po ako sa bundok. maganda na maramdaman mo na malawak ang mundo at napaliit lang natin. Very humbling. Try nyo rin po at mukhang kailangan nyo po, Doc.:)” Angel replied.
But the doctor mocked Angel’s reply, saying that her mountain experience must have been Sagada or the Blue mountains, she also asked the actress what she was doing in the mountains, and later called Angel an empty can who is too noisy but has nothing inside.
“Ganito ka-shallow is Ms. Angel Locsin. Comparable to an empty can. Too noisy but nothing inside. Bawal ba magcomment sa inappropriate actions nya? As artista, she should be responsible with her actions and choice of words,” the doctor fired.
“Bilang doctor, responsible ka rin ho dapat. Nakakahiya po kayo. Siguro wala ho kayong client na artist kung ganyan ang tingin niyo samin. Mapangmataas ka po. Pero wala namang laman ang sinasabi. Pinalaki ho ako ng maayos ng magulang ko at tinuruan ho akong lumaban para sa tama,” Angel wrote.
The clash of the doctor and Angel on Twitter gathered mixed reactions from the netizens.
Although many defended the actress after the doctor belittled her, there are also some who believe that she should just ignore such things instead of getting engaged in a nonsense argument.
